This weekend the first Evergreen Tattoo Invitational thrown by Joshua Carlton and Riley Smith took place in Springfield, OR. The event hosted artists Jeff Gogue, Stefano Alcantara, James and Tim Kern, and painter, Chet Zar.. and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! There’s always this certain buzz in the air at conventions and I’m not talking about the tattoo machines. It’s truly humbling to be surrounded by so many talented individuals and having the chance to admire and share artwork.I don’t think anyone anticipated how busy and successful this convention would be, which only builds the anticipation for next year’s event. Here’s a few snapshots from the weekend..
